Weʼre raising £350 to donate to HELP Nepal
- Helambu, Central Development Region, Nepal
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This summer 2018 I will be spending 4 weeks teaching in a rural school in the Helambu valley, Nepal, which was heavily struck by the 2015 earthquake. I will spend the majority of our time teaching classes of children (ranging from ages 5-18). Outside of school time, I will be organising extra-curricular activities, helping teachers to improve their English and teaching them basic computer skills.
The Charity I’ll be working with is a local NGO called HELP (Helambu Education and Livelihood Project): http://www.help-nepal.org.
They work with approximately 90 schools in outlying villages, helping 10,000 children. The schools are extremely basic, receiving little or no government funding, and on top of this, the earthquake destroyed many school buildings. HELP works to improve the standard of education in these schools through the running of various community led projects which, amongst other things, includes providing school supplies, developing infrastructure and the international volunteering programme which I'm taking part in.
International volunteers like myself, have been proven to have a significant impact. As volunteers we bring a new teaching style which the teachers can adopt and has been shown to boost pupil interest and attendance. I will also be working with the teachers to improve their English and IT skills. I will be paying rent to a local family, who will house and feed me and show me some of the region during weekends.
PLEASE NOTE: 100% of the money I raise will go directly to the local school I’ll be working with. No money will be spent on personal/travel expenses or charity admin costs.
I am incredibly excited to be taking part in a programme which has a direct and meaningful impact on so many lives. In the new year, I will be organising some events to fundraise for the cause. I would be extremely grateful for any contributions that will help me to achieve my fundraising target.
